I have a question, is it possible to write a program in rexx for replacing compile and run jcl of COBOL? Just by getting the program name and load libraries it should run the program.

If not for a big program atleast for a simple program can we write a rexx tool for it?

Hi,

First create an member with compile and run jcl. get the input from rexx program and change the EXEC line alone and then write the member back with updated pgm name. and then sub the updated member.

Regards,
mani

By this you mean replacing a JCL with an REXX exec OR you just want to make it an online process..? If you just want to make it online then-
Try foreground menu in ispf, you will figure out how to use it, it is pretty easy and readymade to serve your requirement.
If you want to write a REXX, it should not be that hard using, CALL to IGYCRCTL and HEWL/IEWL with proper DD setup.
But make sure you use your site specific standard method/parameters.
manihcl85, I think you are just suggesting to automate submission of compiler JCL, and OP wants to replace JCL...
